I personally would have no concerns building on JDOM for a release 5
months from now because in 5 months JDOM should be 100% rock solid. 
Heck, there are hardly any bugs being reported as is.  Look at the
TODO.txt containing known issues.  Almost everything is an RFE.  

I think the JSR does dicate the time when we can have a formal 1.0. 
It's hard to imagine shipping a 1.0 against a version of the spec that
isn't yet Final Release.

Do with this knowledge what you will.  :-)
